Title ROOTS & ROUTES Peer Coach Curriculum
Product Type program or curricula
To be a young artist in present times is no small feat. It offers both tremendous challenges and great opportunities. Increasing mobility and a rapidly changing society offer chances for artistic development as well as challenges: Financial stability is not a given in the artistic work field.
That said, the rewards from coaching a new generation of young artists are great. ROOTS & ROUTES partners across Europe have met with young artists in the field of performing arts and media who wanted to learn how to coach others in their field. They feel that they have something to offer, as well as to gain: To offer they have the knowledge and skills that they have acquired so far. To gain they have an (additional) means of gaining financial independence with what they know and do best: practicing their art, and passing it on to others.
With this curriculum we want to equip young artists with some of the tools they will certainly use during the journey up ahead.
The ROOTS & ROUTES Peer Coach Curriculum has three main parts:
Part I offers a basic introduction into the peer coaching approach and discusses requirements for running a peer coach training/ academy.
Part II outlines the competencies required by peer coaches in performing arts and media. Modules focusing on these competencies are described, with concrete methods, requirements and recommendations. This is structured by four fields of competency:
1. Artistic and media competencies for coaches
2. Pedagogical/ teaching/ coaching competencies
3. Entrepreneurial competencies
4. Reflective, cross-sectoral and lifelong learning competencies
